In the first episode of My Refugee Story we talk with Abdulazez Dukhan, a Syrian photographer living in Belgium for over five years. He and his family came to Belgium through the EU Relocation Scheme after a tough journey which led him from Syria through Turkey and Greece, and finally to Belgium.
In the second episode of My Refugee Story, we speak with Mariana Cadenas, a Venezuelan journalist and filmmaker based in Brussels. She found safety in Belgium in 2016 and started processing the emotions that come with fleeing your home through art and storytelling.
In the third episode of My Refugee Story, we speak with Sofiia, a Ukrainian journalist who found safety in Belgium, and Christophe, the founder of Euractiv who welcomed Sofiia in his home together with his wife.
